Medium Performance

IN ACCORDANCE TO ISO 10272-1:2006 REQUIREMENTS
as a selective medium for the detection of Campylobacter

EASY READING
36-48h incubation at 42°C. The intense red colored colonies on a translucent agar facilitates the reading compared to charcoal based agar.

HIGH RECOVERY RATE ~100%
enumerating Campylobacter has never been so simple and so reliable.

HIGHLY SELECTIVE
In addition, a reinforced selectivity allows for a very clean plate, even with heavily flora loaded samples.

Focus on Campylobacter

Campylobacter bacteria are a major cause of foodborne diarrhoeal illness in humans and are the most common bacteria that cause gastroenteritis worldwide. In developed and developing countries, they cause more cases of diarrhoea than foodborne Salmonella. The high incidence of Campylobacter diarrhoea, as well as its duration and possible sequelae, makes it highly important from a socio-economic perspective. In developing countries Campylobacter infections in children under the age of two years are especially frequent, sometimes resulting in death.” World Health Organization (WHO)  fact sheet N°255

Campylobacter spp. are fastidious bacteria that may be difficult to recover due to suboptimal specimen transport and/ or storage conditions and lack of proper culture procedures. Several culture media formulations have been developed, some bloodbased other including charcoal. Each of these media have shown to be a mediocre compromise between specificity and sensitivity.

With CHROMagarTM Campylobacter, no compromises! This medium allies the highly specific and easy to read chromogenic technology with an unrivalled growth agar base.
